Performer spotlight: Jayda Blayze

Performer Spotlight

What with COVID disrupting shoots, an OnlyFans boom and more content creators than ever shooting DIY porn from home, it’s an interesting time to work in the porn industry. So it seems like a good time to launch a new series of posts - performer spotlights. This will be a regular blog series highlighting performers and content creators making hot videos for the spanking community. Go, click their links, check them out, give them some love - starting with the gorgeous Jayda Blayze.

Jayda is a 24 year old art student and porn maker based in Michigan - and she's a busy bee. She publishes fetish photos and videos at her JustFor.Fans page, including heaps of spanking content, with 6 new videos and 4 photosets every month. Fans of vanilla porn can also see her sexy updates at OnlyFans, where she posts nudes and explicit videos. And all her videos are available individually on ManyVids.

Just a glance at her video store shows just how kinky she is - her content features gags, bondage, wedgies, sex toys, BDSM and of course plenty of good old fashioned corporal punishment!

The great thing about porn made by performers is that you can be sure everyone involved was happy to be there. Jayda shoots with her friends and play partners at home, and comes up with the scenarios she she wants to shoot. She offers custom videos and sexting as well as publishing content on three different platforms. 

Jayda is creative, cute as a button, and she can certainly take a spanking. She also seems like a genuinely sweet person. We wish we were closer so we could shoot with her in person.

Go check out her videos, and don't forget to follow her on Twitter!

Pandora's secret superpower

Pregnant Pandora Blake paddled on the bare bottom at Dreams of Spanking

I don’t know if you guys realised this, but Pandora has a secret superpower: the ability to make hot, taboo spanking porn films that are also...weirdly wholesome?

On the surface of it, there’s nothing wholesome at all about our latest film. Pandora plays a bratty slut who has got herself pregnant - and doesn't even know who the father is! By the end she has an extremely red bottom courtesy of daddy dom Nimue, who has had enough and knows who's going to be left to look after the baby. It’s an edgy spanking roleplay involving implied daddy/daughter age play, serious telling-off, and a heavily pregnant spankee getting a hard bare bottom paddling. Plus there's at least one orgy joke.

And yet, and yet... when you get to the end, see - well, I won’t spoil it for you, but I came away giggling and genuinely heartwarmed. This film is a hot power play spanking fantasy, it presses all sorts of filthy buttons, and it also somehow rather sweet. I know Pandora was determined to shoot some hard spanking porn while heavily pregnant, and the baby bump in this film is the real deal. If you like a little age play with your spanking (guilty as charged) and breaking all the rules, you'll like this. And really, who doesn’t want queer butch Daddy dom to spank them and take care of them? I know I do.

Once Upon a Time

Adele Haze waits for a spanking at Dreams of SpankingAdele Haze rubs her spanked bottom at Dreams of Spanking

One of my favourite things about working at Dreams of Spanking is how varied the content I get to write for is. One week I’m waxing lyrical on the virtues of pornography made by real life couples who are truly, deeply in love; the next I’m laughing out loud at a queer comedy pastiche of a BBC period drama. And then this lands in my inbox: an aristocratic fairytale about the haughty future Duchess of a magical land. Never a dull moment!

I think my favourite thing about this story is that it looks at submission from an angle we rarely see: the focus here is on Riva’s fortitude. She’s portrayed not as someone receiving a punishment they richly deserve, nor as a person having a dream fulfilled; those are both true and excellent stories about people who love to be spanked, but they’re not the only roles submission has to offer. This is spanking as a challenge that can be overcome, and a woman who finds strength in overcoming it.

In a way, this echoes some of my own journey with kink and BDSM. This might come as a surprise to some of my former play partners, but I’m not really a masochist in the truest sense; pain itself is rarely my goal for an encounter, and I’m mostly in it for the power dynamics and headspaces. Some of my most memorable scenes involving corporal punishment have been the ones where I’ve finished the session feeling as though I’ve achieved something; I can take pride in knowing that I have these bruises because I weathered the storm. It was difficult, and I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but I stuck it out and I came through to the other side. There’s a life lesson in there somewhere.

(It’s a mistake, incidentally, to assume that the amount of pain someone is in is directly proportional to the amount of fuss they’re making. For some of us the reverse is true - yelps and wriggles mean we’re still warming up; silence and stillness mean I’ve centred myself to ride the wave. Tops, remember to check in with and get to know your bottoms: this has been a PSA! But I digress.)

Riva might end her spanking crying at her new mistress’s feet, but she is not portrayed as a weak or broken woman. She was strong enough to conduct an excoriating self-analysis without shying away from her worst qualities, she was strong enough to trek for hours through the forest to reach an unknown destination, and she was strong enough to take an hours-long OTK spanking without even shedding a tear till it was almost over.

I kind of love Riva, honestly. She’s got this. And so, perhaps, do we

A long, hard, er - detention

Pandora Blake shares a school caning fantasy with a JOI twist

For a lot of us, kinks and fetishes of all kinds have their origin stories way back in childhood. It’s pretty common to be aroused throughout our lives by whatever was around during our earliest experiences of our own internal sexuality, or by something that for whatever reason our childhoods rendered taboo (and therefore exciting). One explanation for why so many people find school uniforms arousing makes sense in this context - after all, a lot of the first people we ever fancied were wearing them at the time!

This is probably how spanking got a reputation for being a British vice. In reality it’s probably no more common here than it is anywhere else in the world, but we invented the classic public school system - the overly formal uniforms, the hierarchical culture where pupils were punished as much by other pupils as they were by school staff, the focus on canes and birches and punishment books to correct wrongdoers. It’s not as much a thing of the past as one might imagine, either: corporal punishment wasn’t banned in British state schools till 1986, and it was 1998 before public schools fully abolished the practice. There are people who were spanked or caned in British schools who are now still in their 20s and 30s.

That group no longer contains most of us, of course; I certainly wasn’t caned at my inner city comprehensive in the early 2000s. It’s difficult to apply any of the old-fashioned ideas about British schooling to my experience, really, barring perhaps the uniform - which I found a thousand different ways to personalise and cheat! So what’s my excuse?

I think some of it might come down to a sort of national nostalgia, often rather rose-tinted. I sat in my so-called “rough” state comp, with its creaky 60s prefab buildings and its somewhat humiliating OFSTED reports, reading boarding school stories and coming of age novels set in some distant but unmistakably British past. 

Our latest film, ‘A Visit to the Schoolmaster’, is playing on exactly this kind of nostalgic looking back to a past we were never quite a part of. Pandora has had a thing for public school canings since before she can remember, so she’s thrilled to have a chance to meet a real boarding school master - particularly when he turns out to still have his punishment book and his slender, biting canes. We’re told this tale while she’s dressed in full school uniform, smirking cheekily into the camera, the kind of gleam in her eyes that will get you a long detention. 

But who wouldn’t want a long detention, if they got to share it with her?

Summer site improvements

A screengrab of our shiny new join page

Lockdown wasn’t a fallow period for us here at Dreams of Spanking - quite the opposite! No childcare meant I didn't have much time to do things myself, which made this the perfect moment to bring on new team members. We’ve got three newbies in the Dreams of Spanking family: DJ has joined us as our marketing lead, Sally is now helping out with the web development side, and Abi is our new writer assisting with scene copy and blog posts. Including this one, actually. (Well, this just got a bit meta, didn’t it? Who needs a fourth wall anyway. -Ed.) I record garbled dictation files with a baby on one arm, and she turns them into nice sentences for me. Thanks Abi!

Expanding the team has been an interesting experience, because for the first time I’m documenting some of the processes that for the past ten years have only existed in my head. It’s been a great reminder that there’s actually quite a lot to this porn-making thing. A surprising amount of skill, effort and expertise goes into creating the content you all enjoy! And writing down our methodologies is a great investment in the future, making it easier for me to delegate while keeping the quality of the work to the standard you've come to expect. 

So what have we all been working on? Further to our April post about changes to the site, there’s some new stuff to tell you about...

A shiny new join page!

One big thing we’ve changed recently is our join page. it’s now easier for prospective members to see what you'll get with your membership, and we’ve streamlined the signup process too. There are now just two quick web forms to fill in: one here on the website to create your account, and another on CCBill to pay. You won’t need to duplicate information between those two forms, and you can do the whole thing in one go. DJ worked his magic on the page, which now looks much nicer and pleases my aesthetic heart.

This has also given me a chance to finally reinstate MasterCard payments. I cancelled our MasterCard merchant subscription when the site was dormant, as CCBill charges $500 a year to receive MasterCard, meaning we need at least 30 members per year who can only pay with MasterCard to make it worthwhile. Now that our update schedule has stabilised and membership is growing, I thought it was time we gave you back that option. If you’ve been holding off on buying a membership because you only use MasterCard, now’s your chance!

Better mailing list software!

We've transitioning our mailing list management to SendGrid rather than handling it in-house. This upgrade gives us access to lots of new shiny features and analytics, with more flexibility to schedule emails and keep track of what's been sent, making it easier than ever for us to send you enticing spanking content. Among other things, this has enabled us to create a new opt-in: you can now sign up for free weekly spanking pics direct to your inbox, a hand-picked selection showcasing hot kinky moments you may not have seen before. It’s a great addition to our existing list, which is still the easiest way to stay abreast of all our new content as soon as it goes out. You can join either or both of these lists here. We've also created an option for new members to sign up for either or both lists when you create your account, so it's easier than ever (though still completely optional, of course).

Incidentally, if you have any feedback on either our mailing list setup or on the new join page we’d love to hear it: do they make you want to sign up? Is there anything else you’d like to see? Does it all make sense to you? Let us know in the comments on this post.

An improved update schedule!

We’ve committed to a new update schedule - and in fact we’ve been maintaining it steadily for a few months now. You’ll be getting brand new spanking content on the second and fourth Saturday of every month from here on out - so put that in your diaries! At least one of these updates will always be a video with an image gallery. The other might be a new video, but it could also be a photostory or an audio story. This gives us the best chance to showcase what our fantastic performers can do, and caters well to the tastes and preferences of our membership.

It's still uncertain when it’ll feel safe to shoot new partner scenes again - I’m thinking about options to reduce risk like pre-shoot testing, infrared thermometers and scenes featuring masks. Never fear, however: we’ve got porn! I've got plenty of content in the can that's yet to be posted, and we’re building relationships with performers who shoot at home. Many of these will be solo, but there are also scene partners and real-life couples sharing pods. We're partnering with some wonderful content creators, so watch this space for details! We’ve always been big fans of performer-created porn, and the whole industry has been in the same boat. We've seen a real growth in DIY porn this year, which is all to the good. We're dedicated to keeping to our schedule and bringing you the good stuff.

It’s wonderful to be collaborating with new team members behind the camera and new performers in front of it. I’m really looking forward to keeping the site growing and reaching new audiences in 2020 and beyond.

A gay old caning film

Blake scolds Charlie J Forrest at Dreams of Spanking

It’s almost always a shame to take sex too seriously. Let’s face it, fucking is kind of an inherently ridiculous thing to do: it’s messy, it’s often unflattering, it’s practically inevitable that someone will get a painful cramp at an inopportune moment. The ability to laugh with our sexual partners is what makes all these things okay, and it can be a bonding experience in and of itself.

So sometimes I think porn could do with a bit more humour. Not all the time, of course - we all love our severe, headspacey scenes too - but why shouldn’t porn sometimes be funny? Life is funny. Sex is often funny. If porn is an art form in its own right (and I believe that it is, or can be) there’s no reason it shouldn’t imitate life in all its ridiculous glory.

Blake canes Charlie J Forrest on the bare bottom at Dreams of Spanking

A Spot Of Bother is a male/male bare bottom spanking film in a historical setting. It is also, at times, genuinely laugh-out-loud funny. It’s a sort of Jeeves & Wooster (or perhaps Holmes & Watson) period pastiche, a queer trans sendup with a sense of humour as uniquely British as caning itself. “They insulted the Queen, I suppose?”, asks Blake at one point, trying to work out what has caused his dutiful manservant to act with such uncharacteristic impulsivity. You can see the twitch of Charlie’s lips trying to keep a straight face as he replies: “In a manner of speaking, sir.” 

This is a guest director film, produced and edited by Charlie Forrest himself. He clearly had as much fun with the editing as he and Blake with the ad libbing. The result is a rollicking gay spanking film with some jolly good jokes. That doesn’t take away from the hard caning we all love to see here; in my opinion, it adds to it. This scene is as well-rounded as Charlie's bottom, and there’s no denying that Blake makes a fabulous queen.

Pandora's private boudoir

Pandora Blake is ready with the strap on Dreams of Spanking

A few weeks ago in another blog post, I briefly lamented the universe’s paucity of femdom content that does not aim itself solely at masc subs, and lo - Pandora has yet again sought to redress that imbalance. You can’t say we never do anything for you!

Feminine Discipline is gorgeous: even from a purely artistic perspective these shots are lovely to look at. They make a beautiful gallery set, they work as well individually as they do together, and the whole collection really feels like a peek into dominant-Pandora’s own private boudoir.

Of course we’re not really here to look at these photos “from a purely artistic perspective”, are we. They are also, frankly, hot as hell; Pandora is dressed in a tight pencil skirt that hugs her every curve, her blouse unbuttoned just enough to leave you wanting more. The upskirt shots have a clandestine feel to them, letting you sneak a peek at her seamed stockings and the curve of her beautiful derrière. Throughout the set she toys with a variety of implements - hairbrush, strap, cane - and it’s clear to see she knows exactly how to handle them. And you, perhaps...

The real jewels of this set, though, are the photos that focus on Pandora’s face. So much of a D/s dynamic is played out in facial expressions, and these images replicate that beautifully. She looks stern, confident, relaxed; in some shots she’s giving you a glance of casual dominance, in others a mischievous smirk. She’s still deciding what she wants to do with you today, and she’s absolutely in control. This is the kind of photoset you’ll come back to again and again, always finding a new way to imagine what it is all that tension is building up to

Real fantasies, real Dreams

Pandora Blake's shows off their butt plug at Dreams of Spanking

Like many spanking fans, here at Dreams we love beautiful bottoms in all their forms. Our latest scene might not be the kind of ‘butt stuff’ we usually release here, but it showcases so much of what we’re all about; it’s a wholly performer-produced film, focused entirely on Pandora’s own interests and enjoyment (and their bum, of course).

And it is hot, isn’t it. Another thing we love to do here is share fantasies - a lot of our scenes come from the fantasies of the performers featured. The real heart of this scene is Pandora’s dreams; the desire they let you in on as they fuck themselves to climax. They tell you all about how much they’re enjoying what they do, how much they love the feeling of being filled. You can see in their face how intense and how real their orgasm was.

How long did they keep that plug inside them after they finished filming? We’re not telling - but we do know their love of everything butt is as real as can be

Honest Porn Reviews

Screengrab of review of Dreams of Spanking on HonestPornReviews.com

We know we're back with a bang - porn review site HonestPornReviews.com have updated their review of Dreams of Spanking. They’re a great resource for comparing porn sites around the web, so I was really happy that they wanted to update their page for us - they last reviewed the site before our ATVOD-imposed hiatus. They’ve given us a high score of 8.3 - thank you very much HonestPornReviews.com!

They’ve made some lovely comments in their new review. The reviewer praised the site for our diverse mix of genders and orientations, adding that “this is an equal opportunity site in every single way, and that is why it is a cut above most other spanking fetish sites that I have seen.” This is something which is really important to our values, and it's great to know it matters to other people too. They also singled out our web design and user experience, saying “This is a beautifully presented site that does almost everything right”. Always good to hear! 

The only low score we received was on download speed. This is really interesting to me, as the server the site is hosted on is the one I use for everything, and I've always experienced fast download and upload speeds. What's your experience of the site's download speeds? I want to make the site a pleasure to use, so this is something I want to look into if it's something others have noticed. Perhaps it's time to switch to a new server.

In addition to the official HonestPornReview score, there's also a "user score" which is simply an average of the score given by users who leave comments on the review. Our user score is a little lower - 7.3. This is down to two older comments. One person gave us a 5/10 shortly after our ATVOD hiatus began, saying that we’d closed down, which of course was fair enough at the time but no longer relevant (hurrah!). There’s also a 1.5 score from back in 2014, from someone claiming that “the English spanking models are nowhere near as attractive as the European models”. I’ll admit it, I got a laugh out of that one.

So I’ve got a quick ask for all you wonderful blog readers - if you’ve got a minute, I’d love it if you popped over and left a comment and a score out of 10 yourselves. It doesn't need to be long, and the user score updates in real time, so it’s satisfying to see it change once you’ve added your opinion! We love reading your comments on new posts and updates, and we really value your input - so here’s your chance to tell the world what you think of us. Especially if you feel moved to score us ten out of ten *cough* - er, I mean, we’re always interested in hearing your frank and honest opinions of our work!

On the wonders of aural sex

Paddle, flogger and dice at Dreams of Spanking

I’ve always thought there wasn’t enough audio porn in the world.

Partly that’s down to my own particular set of, er, ‘interests’. I once came just from someone talking me into it, no physical touching required, and I’ve always harboured a deep-seated interest in submissive hypnosis - I could write an essay on the wonders of a chatty dominant!

It’s not just that, though: it’s also because audio erotica lets you get lost in your own mind like nothing else does. Much as I prefer radio soaps to their televisual counterparts (because on radio the pictures are better), aural porn is as close as it gets to a two-person solo experience.

In-ear headphones help a lot with this. They sound like the speaker’s voice is right inside my own head, and that feeling has been a powerful element of some of my most memorable sexual experiences. Even when you’re alone, with audio porn there’s no barrier between you and the fantasy at hand; there’s no bright screen to keep an eye on, no variably-formatted text to squint at on your phone. You can invite the story into your mind and let yourself get lost in it.

One of the things that makes porn difficult - both to create as a performer and to find as a consumer - is that everyone wants porn that is exactly their thing. Cis men are usually the assumed viewer, especially if one’s interests run primarily to the femdom end of the spectrum (I can’t really be the only queer female sub who wants to watch femdom stuff, can I?) - and even when that’s not a problem, most of us still want to find porn where the performers are our physical ‘type’ and the setting is one that resonates.

None of that matters with audio erotica. I’m especially fond of scenes like our recent Snake Eyes where the story is essentially a monologue; the submissive is never described, never gendered, never referred to other than as “you”. The encounter could be taking place anywhere - a dungeon, a castle, your own bedroom. Zak, with her calm, commanding voice, could be anyone you wanted to put yourself at the mercy of. This is a story of random factors and precise paddling that comes tailor-made for any subby spanking fan who listens to it.

I get that humans tend to be highly visual creatures, of course, but goddamn - sometimes, I just want someone to whisper into my ear.
